Another 'U' turn?
Another 'U' turn?
Good morning all, Just caught the end of the news and think i heard them say that the government have abandoned plans to sell of the public forests to private entities. Can anyone shed some light on this. Could it be that public opinion has won out?
I suspect they have realised that its not worth the money made going through all the promised consultations. It isnt over yet, it will probably end with a rump FC remaining as the authority for woodlands but not owning much as its parcelled off under the radar over the next 10 or so years. Dont think that a change in Govt would end it either, when Maggie was sec for education she closed more Grammar schools than the previous Wilson Govt had. Acts of parliament to make laws cost a lot in time and repealling them almost as much. For every repealled act there will be another to replace it and its all parliamentary time!
That scuppers my plan to buy Delamere then

Is forestry finally to be conceded as being all about public parkland, to be offset against national Carbon output (or some such psuedo-scientific babble) and all pretense that it was actually for the primary production of timber put into the true perspective of that being the secondary output/by-product rather than true raison d'etre?

When the supposedly beaten dog slides underneath, just be sure that there is not a purpose before you begin cheering - that of chewing your gonads or neck out ! Using politics to run a country to its optimum level never worked from the word 'GO' in Roman times. It was always about winning.
